Stay-at-home-dad Steve Wilson tells the story of his son’s expulsion from kindergarten in a 5-part series in GQ. Wilson and his wife had adopted their son at 5 months old, saving him from an abused past – but were told that even newborn babies can experience lasting effects from such abuse and separation from parents.

In part 1 of the story, Wilson talks about the closeness he and his son have – and what it was like witnessing first-hand the problems that led to his son’s expulsion.

Stay tuned for part 2 on January 17, which will cover exactly what Steve and his wife did to homeschool their son.
